Yamba crew to the rescue after kitchen fire
FIRE and Rescue 510 Yamba jumped into action on Tuesday when a kitchen fire broke out in a residence on Ocean Street.
It's understood that oil in a pan caught fire on the stove top. Fortunately, residents had extinguished the fire using a dry powder fire extinguisher.
But, just to play it safe, two members of the Fire and Rescue crew donned breathing apparatus and used a thermal imaging camera to investigate.
"Natural ventilation from the ocean breeze and the positive pressure van was used to ventilated the property," a Fire and Rescue 510 Yamba spokesperson said.
"It was then checked with the gas detector and rendered safe. It was then handed back to the owner"
